There is epic and then there is EPIC.
As it’s name suggests, this luxury Cartagena vacation rental falls into the latter category, although you might not realise it at first glance.
The reception is deceivingly small compared to the huge courtyard at the back, which is made even larger by the streams of light bouncing off the property's Colgate-white walls.
The spacious rooms have a clean slate feel, with muted grey, creamy natural tones and plenty of light coming in from the sparkling courtyard. Countless modern art works and coffee table books give it an academic edge, without losing any of its contemporary cool.
This luxurious bolthole is split into three spacious apartments with 11 bedrooms in total. Although many Cartagena vacation rentals balance this apartment/mansion category, there are few that reach the impressive heights of Casa Epica.
Not only does every apartment boast huge bedrooms, walk-in closets, marble bathrooms and all the latest mod-cons, but each one contains its own palatial swimming pool and attractive deck area. Impressive.
So how do you pick which apartment is right for you and your group?
Well, if you're in a large group and love layered spaces, Apartment One is a match made in heaven.
If you’re yearning for some Caribbean flavour, grab the keys for Apartment Two. The sunny furnishings, street facing views and fabulous swimming pool will set you into the Costeño groove.
Private owls can seek sanctuary in Apartment Three. Located on the lower floor, it’s shadier, cooler and feels completely shut off from the rest of the world.
In Casa Epica there is an epic match for everyone!
Cartagena's nerve centre serves up breathtaking colonial architecture, the city's top attractions, finest hotels, eateries and drinking dens as well as being the administrative and cultural heart of the city.
Centro has lost none of its importance thanks to the universal lure of its colonial pomp and the concentration of government buildings, hotels, tourist attractions, bars and restaurants in the area.
Cartagena's finest hotels and restaurants have taken over the uber-casas built by slave traders and Spanish plunderers in the 17th century.
The richest residents knocked up stunning two and three-storey mansions by the westernmost tip of the walled city, where they bagged the sea breeze and first whiff of pirates. Today only those at the very top of Colombia's rich list can afford to maintain these opulent houses in their original residential state.
